  3. The research practice: a chat with PNRR researchers. OnFoods and Spoke 6 at the Sustainable Development Festival

Published: May 13, 2024 Event date: May 22, 2024
On the 22nd of May, 2024, from 3 PM to 6 PM, in the Magnolia Courtyard of the University of Pavia, the event ‘La pratica nella ricerca - Due chiacchiere con i ricercatori del Pnrr’ will take place, promoted by Spoke 6 of the OnFoods project, in collaboration with OSA (Office for Sustainable Actions), as part of ASviS's Sustainable Development Festival.
The event aims to introduce the public to the research activities of Spoke 6, coordinated by the University of Pavia.

Spoke 6 ‘Tackling Malnutrition’ is focused on developing nutritional strategies targeting the most vulnerable categories of the national population (i.e., families in the condition of financial hardship, people affected by pathologies, or older people), thus ensuring adequate nutrition and limiting the onset of malnutrition situations that would end up reducing resilience and aggravating conditions of frailty.

The research activities are therefore aimed at increasing the quality of foods and diets, developing smart innovative technologies for sustainable food production and consumption, and guaranteeing food safety and food security at the whole population level and in specific vulnerable targets of the population.

At the beginning of the event, the Spoke leader, Prof. Hellas Cena, will give an introductory speech to provide an overview of her Spoke and the entire PNRR project. Following this, to make the topics accessible to the general population, each project will be presented through a simple and educational game.
